Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

That said, even though I don't agree with all the nerfs or even the fact some cards were left alone (mostly DKs) the fact they are willing to nerf at all is a great thing. they ****ed up by leaving dr boom the dominant card for 2 years of hearthstone, if they are changing their mentality it improves the games health

guldan should have definitely eaten a nerf, card is just bonkers busted.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

guldan is 100% insane, battlecry + hero power are both the best of all the DKs

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

its a hybrid deck. it doesn't face rush you down from turn 1 - it cant - but callto arms power swing with equality clears to SMOrc (and avenging wrath finishers) means it is a fast midrange deck

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I would have loved to see them nerf Gul'dan, maybe to 2 damage/ 2 heal hero power so it's not so insane.

Also Skull is a huge problem imo because it forces games to be decided by whether or not you drew your weapon removal by turn 5 and creates non-games where you just get blown out and is really unfun. In a similar fashion but not as drastic as naga + giants on turn 5 have you drawn your answer, if not you die.

Warlock will still be super powerful I imagine. It's amazing how busted they made that class. It was unplayably bad during ungoro then 2 expansions later nerfing 2 key cards from the class just doesn't feel good enough.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

King Mukla + Naturalize is a fun combo in tavern brawl this week.

50/50 against mana wyrm+missiles and priest/mind blast, but rolls over a lot of decks (keep naturalizing their minions)

I actually cleared with world twig / lich king. I've generally liked these 2-4 card brawls but some of the combos show up every time like the aforementioned wyrm/priest combos. Would be nice if they could lock out certain cards or do something that after you've won with a particular 2 card combo you can't repeat it.

Yeah the only issue with naturalize I’ve found is if there are no minions. I tried it with howl plus naturalize and I won but pretty luckily against some weird warrior with whirlwind and the 2 mana 4 damage hero attack and some weird priest mind blast and one mana 1/1 death rattle.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I keep trying stupid combos in the tavern brawl but keep running into mana wyrm missiles or mind blasts and it kinda ruins the fun

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Seems like Twig + Starfire is super OP. Get to turn 5 and there is almost nothing they can do. I'm not willing to craft Twig to win though.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

finally completed toki

almost conceded to redraw my choices as well. Picked the minions costing 5 or more cost 5 and didn't see a minion above 5 mana until my 4th round of buckets.

Somehow didn't get screwed by rng enough to win

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

solo adventures > ladder grinding imo

i went back to finish all the dungeon runs and having way more fun doing it than playing the ladder. first time around i didnt really like the solos that much but the witchwood solos got me hooked.

After turn 45 both heroes just explode and the game is called a draw.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

So what are everyone's post-nerf meta predictions? Definitely seems like aggro is going to be stronger overall. I'm going to lol when Murloc Paladin still boasts over 55% winrate despite CTA nerf. I just got a Sunkeeper Tarim from a pack 2 days before the nerf and only need like another 1.5k dust worth of stuff to build a murloc paladin deck. I really don't understand why this deck is so unpopular; I've run into it maybe once for every 30 cube/control locks.

I think some kind of odd-paladin variant where people only run 6-10 one drops and more late game cards could be really good. Main reason it was kinda bad before was autoloss to control or cube warlock. I've been experimenting with a variant that uses Frostwolf Warlords and some guy on hearthpwn hit pretty high legend (https://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1114...nd-odd-paladin) using this kind of approach and with Bittertide Hydras. There's so much AOE and taunt in this meta I reckon that a more midrangey approach knowing you'll always have a boost on refilling the board might work better than slotting 14 1-drops in your deck and spamming them while praying you draw level-up, get a sunkeeper off of your stonehill, or draw your stormwind champ.

Odd Rogue definitely going to be coming up, and I kinda hope to see more keleseth tempo/miracle rogue as well. Both make for very interesting games.

Really praying quest warrior/fatigue warrior don't get popular; they make basically the most boring games imaginable.
